One Paper Projects (OPP)

Oh pretty paper. . . cutie, cutie paper . . . come home with me baby.

As I said in last month's blog candy conversation on Supplies, I love paper. Especially what I call really 'hardworking' papers. Papers whose patterns provide opportunities to make a variety of distinctive projects. For a frugal crafter like me, they really stretch my dollars.




OA : Thrift Shop Last One



So I'm starting a One Paper Projects (OPP) series on this blog. The idea is to chose one paper from my stash like this one released by October Afternoon in January 2010. Create at least three projects from it to completely use up the paper.



Making Memories : Passport Ledger Teal



Next month, I'll be playing with something positively ancient -this paper released by Making Memories in June 2008. And I'd love for you to join in. If you have a hardworking paper to recommend, leave me a comment. Better still, if you've used one paper for two or more projects let me know.

Now go here for June OPP #1.

That IS a challenge...I'm one that hoards the last little bits, but I *think* I'm pretty good about using papers more than once. What a neat idea for a regular feature - I can't wait to see what comes next!

Brilliant idea! Would certainly learn how to stretch my stash too. More often than not, my scraps just multiply exponentially. LOL

I am imptessed by your use of old papers and I have no doubt that the projects made with the Making Memories papers will be just as stunning!
